, nbc news. >>> we're following new developments right now out of egypt. president obama says he's quote cautiously encouraged by new plans to hold elections in the current year. today egypt's interim president announced he wanted to get an elected government back in place. the muslim brotherhood quickly rejected the plan saying morsi is still the democratically elected leader. tensions are high in the country after 50 pro morsi protesters were secured by security forces yesterday. a powerful car bomb wounded more than 50 people here in a hezbollah stronghold in beirut today. no immediate claim of responsibility but there have been concerns that hezbollah would face retaliation for sending shi'ite fighters to syria to support the government of al assad. many sunnis support syrian's rebels. >>> some people are returning to their homes following last weekend's deadly train derailment and explosion in canada. police confirm 13 are dead. 37 still missing. relatives are being asked to turn over tooth brushes and hair brushes and razors so dna can be used to identify the dead. meanwhile the in
, again, president obama said the right thing. there was a lot of emotion and power in that. what are we doing? we have 166 people detained at guantanamo and 86 have been secured by his administration. what are we doing anymore, what has the situation has become where we are sustaining laf with procedures like you just saw. and for the record, i don't think that is a dramatization. i have sat across from men who have described that to me. i have heard that for years, and i found it completely horrible and very hard to watch. >> very hard to watch. >> but i think the point is, we're still waiting for action to go with president obama's statements. it's been two months since that speech. it's been over five months since the hunger strike started. we haven't seen a intestinal transfer yet, and those need to start happening. and ultimately, you know, as far as force feeding goes, i think judge kessler made an important point in her decision. president obama has the authority to affect policy at guantanamo. he has the authority to affect force feeding policy at guantanamo, and ultimately, he
, the majority of us voted for a president that does show our concern. >> why? >> because right now we as republicans have not put forth an urban agenda to counter what the democrats and president obama has said. not one time when we look at high unemployment, when the president introduced his nominee for secretary of labor, he talked about disability, he talked about the lbgt community, not one time in that five-minute speech of mr. perez did he talk about anything about the african-american or black community and the unemployment. >> yes. back there and then star. yeah. >> i want to say this, with the color thing, my mom's 86 years old, somebody walked up to her and said, sister, do you know where you're from? she said, yeah, i'm from long island new york. no, do you know what country you're from? yeah, from the united states of america. so, i mean, that's the way that they are trying to shove it down their side. but if we can say, hey, guess what? you know what? we are all americans. i mean, i served in the military. we weren't black and white in the military. well, we weren't black

it comes to question what president obama has been doing with the nsa. >> that is right. they did ask him some good questions about the law that allows the government to read e- mails after six months and they asked some questions about pending legislation to fix the nsa. comey kind of hedge on those questions and said he could not offer an opinion. the key thing here is that comey did not really opposed warrantless monitoring, and actually looks like he just wanted the legal underpinnings to be adjusted. as far as whistleblowers, of course, in the fbi and in many of these other intelligence agencies, there is no recourse in court. of course, senator grassley mentioned this. there is no other option for people who would this troupe illegality, as edward snowden did. what do you do when you are witnessing a violation of the constitution and there is no internal chain of command or mechanism to get that information out. comey, of course, i do not think it's not going to answer that because he does not want to prejudice the situation right now of the government prosecuting adverts noted. --

, in essence, when you hear progressives talk about the environment or lgbt rights. you name it. that agenda would be very different, frankly, if, and we wouldn't have a president obama and congress would look very differently without the black and latino vote. i just wonder, does democratic party realize that as well. we focus politically a lot on republicans but this is a moment for democrats and other parts of the progressive moment. this is not just a black/white issue anymore. >> no. this has always been an issue at the core of our democracy itself. this voting rights act was really put in place to help us get closer to making, being one nation under god with liberty and justice for all, our situation rather than our aspiration. we all have an interest in that. there are some folks in the party who i've heard talking about, we can use it as a wedge issue. no. all of us should be saying, we're going to get this done before it can become a wedge issue. this is a time to step up. be disciplined as citizens in saying, we are going to ensure that all of our citizens' right to vote is protect

of fun right now with president oma. >> si is thumbing his nosehe president obama. the same time he is taking that super bowl ring from the new england patriots. you know, it is actually quite tragic because it is not to the point where the president of the united states carries no credibility. and china and russia are making fun of him today and thumbing their noses at him, tomorrow it is venezuela and the next day it is other countries. once this starts weather countries and other leaders have no respe for the president of the united states it is a cascading effect. lou: jay carney, white house press spokesm said that the may a deliberate decision, a deliberate decision to let him leave hong kong for russia. we presume that is where he is added unquestionably has a negative impact on u.s.-china lations focusing on the chinese side of this trilogy, if you will. what are your thoughts? >> well, i think it is a demonstration that the chinese could not care less what the white houseays. did we really do all that we could to persuade them not to let him go? did the president call the c

to afford human rights organizations the ability to do their work in russia throughout russia. not just at the moscow transit lounge. >> within the last few hours, obama and putin actually spoke by phone about edward snowden. we don't know what was said on that call and don't know what will happen to edward snowden. today we do know edward snowden is in russia working with some capacity with the approval, at least, of the russian government. the white house is not at all happy about it. joining me on the phone from rio de janeiro, glenn greenwald for "the guardian" newspaper and broke the edward snowden story in "the guardian." my first question to you is, why do you think after this holding pattern, long weeks where we didn't see edward snowden, why did today happen? >> the reason is because his ability to get to the countries where he's seeking asylum, and hopes to receive asylum, has been thwarted by the willingness of the united states government physically to block him from being able to get there. they revoked his passport which prevents him from traveling. they've signaled to the
,nown that in for a long time, we have not made enough noise to say this is not fair, this is not right. that not only did clinton declined to lessen this disparity, but so did george w. bush. barack obama in 2010, as you point out, legislation that decreases the disparity from 100 to one to 18 to one. which is still unsatisfactory from a scientific perspective. you are concerned and i get that. i don't expect by scientists to play politics. i expect them to give me the facts. i expect scientists to put the facts on the table and if you say there isn't much distinction, he argument was, it was one of the reasons why he signed it again, the argument was that it is so much more harmful for you than powder cocaine. if you're telling me there is not much of a distinction, why does the distinction still exist? ultimately, this is about race. it affected people, like you pointed out. haiti% of people arrested, they are black. if we have a majority of people that look like the guys in congress being arrested, we know that the law would change. the law itself is not racist. it is the enforcement of the law. so we

constitutional right to religious freedom has already been compromised. the refusal by the obama administration to classify institutions as religious employers has already compromised our religious rights. there is every indication this will escalate. refusing to count other catholic colleges and christian colleges as religious employers , the state can target us as they have done to catholic adoption agencies that won't place children with same-sex couples. unless catholic colleges and universities and christian colleges are given some assurance that their religious liberty will be protected the threats will continue. rejecting our claims of religious liberty it is likely that in a misguided attempt to protect women's rights we will will forced to facilitate our students' participation in things like student i wantships at the clinics of abortion providers. similarly catholic colleges and universities may be forced to accept as leaders those who openly disavow the catholic faith. or hoss tile to the catholic faith. analogous situations have arisen. but if wre protest on religious liberty groun

is the assistant attorney general of the civil rights division in washington, dc, he was nominated for that position by president obama and sworn in in october of 2009 and we are all the lucky -- we are all very lucky that that happened in october of 2009. tom has spent his entire career in public service and on protecting the civil rights of our most vulnerable people. tom actually joined the civil rights division as a young lawyer and while he was there he prosecuted some of the most significant cases in the country. lawyers in the civil rights division get fanned out to places in the country to handle cases in mississippi and alabama and california and all over and tom was one of those people. he was sent to texas to handle a very significant hate crime case when he was a young lawyer that involved a gang of white supremacists that went on a killing spree and ended up shooting 3 people and killing one when he was a young lawyer working in the civil rights division. he later served as a top deputy for attorney general janet reno, he was special counsel to ted kennedy and ser
it is the right thing to do. also because it is good for business. president obama should follow the lead with corporate america. he should follow the lead of the american people who have totally accepted the gay rights movement. there is nothing to be afraid of. it's time to sign. >> john: i hope he heard it because i'm sure the white house still gets current. tico, what are the odds of this thing making it through the house and becoming law? >> we'll start a discharge petition that allows you to get a bill stuck in committee out of committee when 218 members sign that petition. it's going to be a long slog. it will be a tough site. we've got some shot at it this year. it will help when we wrack up an enormous win in the senate with more than 60 votes possibly around 70. this will be huge when we win. >> john: tico almeida, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> john: okay. the only thing crazier than some of the tea partiers you know are some of the elected tea partiers you know. >> my producer just coughed up a hairball. >>sorry. >>just be grateful current tv doesn't come in "smell

then was that the people should decide in egypt, what he's saying right now is the same thing. it's not like obama was campaigning for morsi. jon: and then there are these disputes about what happened in that attack this morning that left more than 40 people dead. jim, the media suggested that it was a peaceful sit-in outside the military compound. the military then released some videos that made it look like it was a pretty violent protest. >> >> or an attack even. again, we don't know. that's the enormous challenge of it. there's a piece by a fella named -- [inaudible] in the journal this morning that said that, you know, we could be looking at a civil war like in algeria where there was a similar situation where the military overflew the equivalent of the muslim brotherhood, and there was a 10-year war that killed half a million people. we just don't know very much. the concern that the american people has is that the president doesn't have a clearly articulated position. jon: we'll continue to watch the coverage as those troubles in egypt are set to continue. alan, jim, thank you both. >> than
clinton and president obama thought this measure was important this is a policy that's worked effectively in a lot of situations. and about the lawsuits there's no private right of action in this legislation. an employee can't bring a lawsuit based on those laws. the office of labors enforcement can enforce those laws but no employee or employer can bring a lawsuit. regarding h.r. and any burden this is a minimal set of requirements but part of the reason i'd be able to talk about this size of employer with larger organizations with 20 or more there's a little bit of structure about h.r. you have a folder relied to each of your employees and we want to be cognizant and respectful of that. one of the important things about this legislation if there turned out we haven't covered all the issues this allows the board of supervisors next year if you have an issue with this you can introduce an ordinance to amen that. all that said i'd like to continue the conversations with the public >> supervisor yee. >> first of all, i appreciate you're bringing this to our body. for discussion. there's so
